Edmonton's Most Kid-Friendly Communities Featured ImageFamilies often look for certain features when it comes to buying a new home. At StreetSide, we believe that we’ve created homes and communities that are perfectly suited for families, including affordable townhomes. Whether you’re looking for fun playgrounds, great schools, or family-friendly home styles, you’re sure to find them in the following communities.

Cy Becker

If your family is focused on fun, you have to check out the Cy Becker neighbourhood. It has quiet streets and stormwater ponds that make the perfect backdrop for a family bike ride, but the centre of the neighbourhood is the urban village park. Here, you’ll find a spray park, an ice skating rink, and a playground. There’s also a nice hill for tobogganing nearby. 

Your family can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle in the 1,256 square foot Harley . It has three bedrooms with an ensuite in the master bedroom. The kitchen layout is especially nice, with an eating bar at the island that the kids can use for homework or casual meals.

If your family wants a bit more space, consider the 1,502 square foot Madison. It has a den on the second floor that you could use as a home office or a playroom.Either way, this home offers a surprising amount of space for a townhome style home.

Edmonton's Most Kid-Friendly Communities Dalton ImageTamarack

Tamarack is a nice location for families due to its proximity to the brand-new Meadows Recreation Centre. Here, you can enjoy fun activities like swimming, and they have robust opportunities for everyone in the family. Within the Tamarack community, paved trails are perfect for walking, and families love to gather at the playground. You’ll also be close to all of the shops and restaurants around Southeast Edmonton.

The two-bedroom Essex includes a den in the design. This homestyle might be a good choice for a one-and-done family with an older child. The two bedrooms on the top floor each have their own ensuite, so your teen will get lots of privacy, and you will too. And with the den separated from the family’s living area, it could make a nice home office.

On the other hand, the three-bedroom Lombard may be the right solution for you. With three nicely sized bedrooms upstairs, along with a large laundry room on the main level, this open-concept plan is perfect for those with young children to keep an eye on. 

Edmonton's Most Kid-Friendly Communities Glenridding ImageGlenridding

Glenridding is a good choice for those who want to be close to all of the amenities found in the Southwest Edmonton area, such as West Edmonton Mall and the Edmonton Valley Zoo. You’re just a short drive away from it all. Tree-lined paths inside the community make it a nice place for families to take walks together and meet up with friends.

StreetSide’s townhomes in Glenridding tend to be a bit smaller than the ones in the other communities we’ve mentioned, but this doesn’t mean they’re lacking in style. For instance, the two-bedroom Seville model might be a good choice for a young couple looking to start their family because the bedrooms are right next to each other. It’s also a good choice for a retired couple looking to downsize. The grandkids can take the second bedroom when they visit, and you’ll be perfectly located to take them out to some fun amenities nearby.

The Chelsea  is a bit bigger. It includes a den on the ground level and an open-concept living area on the main floor. Upstairs, the master bedroom includes an ensuite with a shower. There’s also a stacked washer and dryer on this floor so that you can easily put the laundry away.

In Every StreetSide Townhome

Each of these townhomes includes a balcony that you can use for relaxing and having fun when the weather is nice. Move-in ready townhomes offer convenience, but if you choose to build on your own, you get the opportunity to pick out all of the design details with the help of an interior designer at our designQ design centre. You’ll be able to create the look you want for your home.

StreetSide’s townhomes are affordably priced while still offering amazing style. You shouldn’t just take our word for it, though. Come tour these popular, kid-friendly communities yourself to see how great they are for raising children. When you combine the well-suited neighbourhoods with the quality you find in a StreetSide Developments townhome, we think you’ve got a winning combination.
